Over the years she’s ridden camels in Oman, wandered through the souks of Muscat, watched brown bears throw boulders like they are marbles at Knight Inlet in Canada and dined on delicious bush tucker in the Outback. Sue has also hiked through Tuscany, walked Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, been mountain biking in Gippsland, paddled a raft on the Mekong River in Thailand and followed Japan’s sacred Kumano Kudo route. “Luxury travel is much more than five star rooms with all the trimmings, it’s about the experiences and the little extras that make the difference between a good stay and a great stay,”she says. Sue tries to take the path less travelled for the best travel stories and experiences and has often discovered it’s the journey as well as the destination that provides great reading. Spa stories are a passion and over the years she has been dipped in chocolate, rolled in honey and sprinkled with gold dust in many Australian and international spas and loved every minute of it. Dining is another passion and she loves everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to picking up a basket of the ripest strawberries at a local market. Based in Albury, country New South Wales, she is close to Victoria’s High Country and enjoys writing about the North-East where there’s something for everyone including adventure, great food, fine wine, magnificent scenery and lots of colourful characters. An experienced journalist, she has worked and written for top international and national newspapers and magazines. See suewallace.com.au
